    [SOLVED] Is now a good time to upgrade my CPU?

    First, I live in Argentina, so US prices and stocks don’t really apply here. This is my current set up: an I5 4460, 16gb ddr3 RAM, and a 2060 GPU. For a while now, I’ve been thinking of upgrading to a 10th gen Intel CPU, as Ryzen prices and availability here are a joke. However, now 11th gen is...

    Question Scratched my monitor, contemplating buying a new one, am i a dumdum for even thinking about this?

    Hi there! A couple of days ago I was cleaning my mousepad and dinged my keyboard into my monitor (DELL S2721DGF), and it got a pretty small but noticeable scratch on it. DELL obviously won't replace it since it's not included in their warranty and they don't do repairs. It really bothers me that...

    Question Having a problem with my RX580

    My friend gave me his old RX580 to try before buying, and I'm not really impressed with it. I'm coming from an RX470, which was starting to feel a little dated, so I was hoping the RX580 would be better. In game performance, it's either the same or worse than what I had before.
